Sigma Call To Action

Brothers by now we have all received the information about the tragic situation that has transpired in Sanford, Florida. Trayvon Martin’s life was senselessly ended by what appears to be an individual who has challenges with those that look different from him.

We are asking Brothers to sign the petition below in calling for the immediate arrest of George Zimmerman. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. (Eastern Region) also wants to see the immediate dismissal of the Police Chief Bill Lee for his poor direction and guidance to the responding officers. We finally would like to see a special prosecutor appointed to handle this case to ensure that justice is served for the members of Trayvon’s family.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity (Eastern Region) stands united behind the parents of this innocent young victim who was slain in what appears to be a hate crime. We are asking our Brothers to participate in any non-violent marches to show support for this family. We also call on our fellow Brothers and Sisters in Greek-dom to join us as we galvanize our forces in an effort to bring about justice. We have had enough of innocent males of color being senselessly gunned down and the justice system turning a blind eye, or providing a poor reason on why killers get to walk.

The link below will take you to the national website created to address this tragic situation.
